Recency bias makes this choice even clearer. The Miami Dolphins were gashed by the Tennessee Titans on the ground without Derick Henry allowing 198 rushing yards. If they want to continue to build on an already impressive defense then adding Georgia’s resident giant Jordan Davis would help.
At 6-foot-6, 340 pounds, Davis makes his fellow teammates look small. In 2021 he’s won the Outland trophy, the Bednarik award, and was named a First Team All-American by almost ever media organization.
Davis doesn’t put major numbers on the stat sheet, but his impact goes way past the boxscore. On the season Davis only had 30 tackles and 2.0 sacks, but he takes up blockers allowing other players to make an impact.
After Alabama’s run game gashed Cincy for over 200 yards, with Robinson alone rushing for 204 yards, Georgia should be weary. That means that the team will likely really heavily on Davis to help limit the run.
In their first matchup during the SEC Championship game, Davis took on his fair share of double teams, something that is not new to him.
The Dolphins already have Christian Wilkins, Rakweon Davis, and Zach Sieler, but the group would benefit from having a player as big and talented as Jordan Davis taking on blockers.
Miami will get tested once again by the New England Patriots run game and that could determine what the team needs in the interior offensive line.
